2. Run the SEVIS Alerts process.
3. View the PersonalInfo Alert and notice the truncation of this number and the error.
Truncated to : 2031094292 (the 1 at the beginning and the 42 at the end are removed).
3. Select the option "Send to Master".
4. Run the Extract and notice that Master is updated with the truncated phone data in the US phone field (2031094292).
